WWTK #50

Happy Wednesday all,  you know what happens on Wednesdays!!  Come on over and talk to us because we want to know all your secrets....

Welcome to We Want to Know Wednesdays Q&A
Hosted by Mamarazzi and Crazymama
Mamarazzi is asking the questions, with a little help from one of  WWTK participants Christine...

{1} What is something that you currently spend money on that you consider a splurge or frivolous?

Fresh Flowers!  I just can't help it in the spring!

{2} Tell us about your first paying job. How old were you?

Baby sitting from the time I was old enough to carry a baby on my hip!  When you have a mother that came from a family of 12 children, who was the second oldest, there are a lot of babies!!  Although the majority  of the time I did not get "paid", eventually I went outside the family to earn money to buy material to make a new outfit!!

{3} Do you plan date nights and extras into a monthly/weekly budget?
No, not really.  I don't go out to eat very often and living in a small town there is not a lot of extra circular stuff to do, so when I want to do something, I just don't worry about it.
almost a one horse town!

{4} Share one of your money saving tips with us.

I do all my grocery shopping at our local Kroger.  I receive gas points and use them every month to fill up my tank. Gas is currently $4.09 in my area!!   I also use coupons when grocery shopping.  I save a lot of money doing these two things. 

when you drive this, every little bit helps!!

And finally, Christine @ wants to know:

{5} If you won the lottery - would you spend it frivolously or use what you need and save the rest? Why?

I would not go crazy, but I would certainly splurge on a few things and I would definitely travel more.  It would depend on how much I won, of course, but, when you are my age, there is less time to check off that bucket list!

I hope you will visit Mamarazzi and Crazymama and Christine and join in the fun!

Love and hugs, have a fabulous day!


  1. We could go just a little crazy don't you think? I've been so careful all of my life that I would love to do something outrageous...just TAKE off to someplace far away! Enjoy your week! I better some back to earth and do some housework! lol

  2. great answers. nice truck. gas is killing me. i should shop smarter and use coupons. great tip about the gas discounts. i need to work the system a little better and maximize it.

    thanks for linking up! here's hoping we win the lottery and can check off our buckets lists.

  3. I love fresh flowers! and your truck!

  4. Enjoyed reading your post. Hope you win the lottery. :-) Think of all the fresh flowers 500,000,000 could buy!♥

  5. Fresh flowers are definitely a splurge around here. And, plants...well, I am known in the garden center as a serial killer! As for the lottery, if you need company on one of those cruises you might be considering, I would love to go!
    Hugs, GraceinAZ

  6. I love your truck, imagine it full of flowers?!

  7. Great truck, horrible gas prices! :-( Makes me sick as there is really no reason for it...we have more oil in the U.S. than all of Saudi Arabia.

    I baby sat early on too...and yes, it was so fun when I finally started making a bit of money. Had one cousin I sat for a lot and she was such an incredible baby and little one. I treasure those days.

    Enjoy your weekend!
